How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. The legal work for leasehold property will usually take more time than a freehold house because leasehold transactions involve more work.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an unresponsive landlord to missing leasehold documents.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Correct, it can take much more time to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold property when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's solicitor will want to see several leasehold-related documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to source this information.

It could take several weeks to collect this information if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property or they are slow to respond, so the seller's solicitor should get this underway even before you have found a buyer.
